PI3 CM Standalone deployment

Hi guys,

I tried to generate a sdimg for standalone usage.

I’m using Mender version 2.0.
The HW is a Raspberry Pi 3 Compute Module. The Image I’ve used is the default raspbian lite image.

I don’t want to use Mender server, I only want to use mender in standalone mode, but it seems to be, I’ve to configure a server for the converting process. How I can skip this?

The command I’ve used:

mender-convert from-raw-disk-image -r input/xberry-img-1.img -m xberry-image-1-mender-integ.sdimg -a elderberry-image-1-mender-integ -d raspberrypi3 --bootloader-toolchain arm-buildroot-linux-gnueabihf

The result I got:
7/9 Installing Mender to Mender disk image…
No server type specified. Aborting.

Thank you in advance

It looks like the mender-convert utility does assume you will be using a server. You can just add the “–demo --demo-host-ip” options to workaround this. The output artifact should work just fine in standalone mode.
